As the Page Turns…Author Interview with Patrick C. Greene

pcg graveyard4Greene cut his fangs in the screenwriting business but found his true calling in the world of prose fiction of the kind his heroes King, Barker and Koontz create.

Living at night, deep in the mountains of Western North Carolina, Greene answers the call of his morbid muse when not enjoying monstrous helpings of horror, kung fu and doom metal.

Q: What’s inside the mind of a horror author?

A: Many surprisingly bright and cheery thoughts, actually. If I may speak for purveyors of the genre, I find my colleagues to share with me a wish for social equality and peace, for beauty/ truth. The horror, with its allusions to the unknown and Unknowable, is both a distraction from mundane bothers and a reflection of the current world state; how it could be so much better with just a little effort.

BLOGCRITICS Interview with Patrick C Greene

From blogcritics.org : The critical lens on today’s culture and entertainment

From the interview…

How do you keep your narrative exciting?

Like many writers I start with an outline but in my case, I will tend to stray wildly from it on a mere whim, shocking even myself by going in, if not the opposite direction to what would be reasonable then certainly a direction where there isn’t a clear path or egress. So I paint myself into a corner. With blood.

The EXAMINER Interview with Patrick C. Greene, author of ‘The Crimson Calling’

When I was a kid I was scared of vampires. I had nightmares of the world being taken over by them, and if they were creatures like Count Yorga and Christopher Lee’s Dracula, and the merciless vamps in 30 Days of Night and Wait Until Dark, they could certainly do so, and easily. I wanted to relive and revive the idea of unstoppable sub-human monsters; older smarter and stronger than us but still very much us. CLICK TO READ THE ENTIRE EXAMINER INTERVIEW


The Writer’s Life eMagazine: Patrick C. Greene

TWL: Welcome to The Writer’s Life eMagazine, Patrick! Tell us, what’s inside the mind of a horror author?patrick bw

PCG: In my case, there’s a bunch of puzzle pieces for present, future, and even past stories, lots of metal earworms, meal planning, envy, guilt over my envy, pride for having guilt over my envy, and guilt for the pride.

TWL: What is so great about being an author?

PCG: I have a great source of therapy and people think I’m smart.

TWL: When do you hate it?

PCG: When I see reality TV stars peaking the bestseller lists with their ghostwritten, third-grade reading level, heavily embellished, self-aggrandizing “biographies” while I’m just looking to achieve fifty reviews on amazon.

TWL: What is a regular writing day like for you?

PCG: First is coffee and a brunchish type meal, then a coupla hours at the gym to get the blood flowing, then onto the actual writing, which is done at my night job, by the way, between various tasks
